When the holiday spirit gets lost and you feel as if you're hanging by a Christmas ornament hook, find a quiet spot, close your eyes and let your awareness drop into your chest. Breathe naturally, not trying to control the breath, just observing without judgement. Sitting in an upright and comfortable position, follow your breath coming in and out through your heart. Allow each inhale to soften the inner space of your heart. Visualize a warm flame resting at the center of your chest and feel it's glowing presence. With each exhalation, the flame grows and radiates light throughout your body- front, sides and back. Continue watching the flame; inhale and it glows, exhale and watch it radiate. Keep softening and relaxing your inner heart and watch the glow of your inner flame spread throughout your body and spill out into the room.
